I was talking to a good friend of mine the other day. She said she had created an Excel spreadsheet that plugged into the start-up menu of her computer. Everytime she turned the computer on, a window would pop up telling her whose birthday was approaching and exactly when those birthdays fell. The spreadsheet ran off of a macro that fired up automatically at computer start-up, produced the birthday report, and then shut the spreadsheet back down once the report was generated. How cool is that. I can only image other applications for this technique, such as anniversaries or any important dates for that matter. What do you think? How else could this technique be applied?
